Chris Weitz To Rewrite “Cinderella”

Chris Weitz (“The Golden Compass,” “About a Boy”) is in negotiations to rewrite a live-action take on “Cinderella” for Walt Disney Pictures says Heat Vision.

“The Devil Wears Prada” scribe Aline Brosh McKenna sold the pitch to Disney in 2010 which re-imagines the tale and sets up the new context of a “prince set for a politically arranged marriage, until the evil plan is threatened when the prince meets Cinderella.”

Mark Romanek (“Never Let Me Go”) is attached to direct while Simon Kinberg is producing.
